Comcast RISE

Comcast RISE is supporting the growth of all small businesses and individuals committed to uplifting their local communities. The program is built to help businesses and their communities thrive with a focus on economic growth. This year, Comcast RISE will award 500 recipients in five cities with a grant package that includes business consultation services; education resources; monetary grant; and creative production, media, and technology makeover.


Now in its third year, Comcast RISE celebrates supporting a total of 13,500 small business owners with tech services, marketing resources, and millions of dollars in grants.


Entrepreneurs in 1,321 cities across 38 states were selected as Comcast RISE recipients.


Comcast RISE awarded over $125 million in monetary, marketing, and technology grants.

During the past two and a half years, we have listened to feedback and taken the learnings from this program and have found new ways to further empower and strengthen even more small businesses and entrepreneurs, who are the backbone of our economy and local communities. By offering grant packages that include complimentary marketing, technology, financial grants, business consulting, and entrepreneurship training, we can further our efforts to positively impact small businesses into 2024 and beyond, and help them to shift from pandemic recovery to long-term growth.
